Nick Griffin' quest for Muslim money

The chameleon like changing public face of Nick Griffin is well document on this blog and elsewhere on the world wide web, but one thing doesn’t change is his pursuit of the filthy lucre.

As leader of the by then floundering National Front, he endorsed Libya's Colonel Gadaffi and Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini. Apparently he was influenced by Colonel Gaddaffi's ideas on people's committees!

Griffin and a colleague visited Tripoli in 1988 at Colonel Gadaffi expense in an attempt to secure funding from the Muslim Colonel’s regime. The picture above shows Griffin (above left) below a huge picture of Gadaffi during the visit.

The attempt failed though as it became clear Gadaffi was only looking for a UK distributor for his ‘Green Book’.
